Adventure

Amazing Adventure

Whether you want to discover the great outdoors, challenge yourself with a new sport or pursue the ultimate adrenaline rush, Dubai is your own personal playground. Sea, sand and snow are just a few of the terrains available in this dynamic city and with so many world-class facilities on offer you can rest assured no activity is off limits!

Desert safari is one of Dubai’s most popular tourist offerings; with the city lying so close to this huge expanse of rolling sand dunes, you can’t truly say you’ve experienced Dubai until you’ve taken a tour into the Arabian Desert. One of the best and most fun ways to explore the desert is in a four-by-four, bouncing over the dunes on a wild ride you’ll never forget! Stop off at Dubai’s 300ft ‘Big Red’ dune to try out sand boarding, and for a truly memorable experience be sure to book yourself a camping stay under the stars.

There aren’t many things that can drag people out of bed early on holiday, but the sunrise over the Dubai desert is definitely one of them. The best way to view this spectacular show is from the vantage point of a hot air balloon; as the sun rises the sand is bathed in yellow, orange and gold, casting a magical glow over the desert. There is another way to get this bird’s eye view, but it is not for the faint-hearted; Skydive Dubai offer jumps over the desert from a height of 13,000ft.

Like most things in Dubai, the sporting facilities have a touch of A-list; you can play tennis on courts graced by the likes of Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer, swim in the same Olympic pool as Tom Daley and walk in the footsteps of famous golfers on Dubai’s fairways. Golf fans in particular will appreciate the star-studded element; many of the courses were designed by professionals such as Colin Montgomerie and Nick Faldo. Tee off at the Jumeirah Golf Estates that hosts the climax of the Race to Dubai, or test your skills at the Majlis course where the Omega Desert Classic is held every year.
